PhD Application Timeline

For summer admission, we encourage applicants to have all materials submitted for review by April 1st.  For spring admission, all materials should be submitted by November 15th. For fall admission, the deadline is July 15th. Acceptance into the program occurs as completed applications are submitted, reviewed and interviews held.

At the beginning of each year, all qualified applicants who have completed the application process and have interviewed, will be considered on a first come, first served basis to fill the slots open annually for new doctoral students.  Admission to the Nursing PhD Program is also a prerequisite for many loans and scholarships.

Note:  The applicant with a BSN will need to meet all the admission requirements for the PhD program.
